A boy died after becoming trapped under an ATV on a rural property in Celista.

On Sept. 12, Chase RCMP responded to assist BC Ambulance on Meadow Creek Road.

Two friends, aged nine and 10-years-old,  were riding an ATV when the machine flipped, trapping both boys under the machine. The boys were rescued by the older brother of the driver, who brought the boys to the farm yard. The boy who was driving was airlifted to Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, and subsequently moved to BC Children’s Hospital, where he died the following day.

The ATV passenger suffered only some bruising.

BC Coroners Service is continuing their investigation.
